Adani’s Bravus Mining Strikes Coal at Carmichael Mine in Australia
Adani’s Australian firm Bravus Mining and Resources has now struck coal and exposed the first of the coal seams at Carmichael Project in Queensland in AUstralia. Bravus Mining and Resources CEO Mr David Boshoff said “Nearly two years ago today we received our final approvals to develop the Carmichael mine and rail Project. We have faced many hurdles along the way, but thanks to the hard work and perseverance of our team, we have now reached the coal seams.”
Mr Boshoff said Bravus is on track to export first coal as promised, in 2021. He said “We’re on track to export first coal this year, and despite reaching this significant milestone, we will not take our eyes off our larger goal of getting coal to market.”
India will be a foundation customer for the Carmichael mine and is the fourth largest global user of electricity as well as the source of the biggest growth in global energy demand. Mr Boshoff said Bravus had already secured the market for the 10 million tonne per annum of coal produced at the Carmichael Mine.
